Authenticate any user with a single shared password#
The Dummy Authenticator lets any user log in with the given password. This authenticator is extremely insecure, so do not use it if you can avoid it.
Enabling the authenticator#
Always use DummyAuthenticator with a password. You can communicate this password to all your users via an out of band mechanism (like writing on a whiteboard). Once you have selected a password, configure TLJH to use the password by executing the following from an admin console.
sudo tljh-config set auth.DummyAuthenticator.password <password>
Remember to replace
<password>with the password you choose.
Enable the authenticator and reload config to apply configuration:
sudo tljh-config set auth.type dummy
sudo tljh-config reload
Users who are currently logged in will continue to be logged in. When they log out and try to log back in, they will be asked to provide a username and password.
Changing the password#
The password used by DummyAuthenticator can be changed with the following commands:
tljh-config set auth.DummyAuthenticator.password <new-password>
